Elegant Dinner, Harpist, Bagpiper, Highland Dancers, Calling of the Clans
The Saturday night event offers the capping of another Remembrance Day weekend with a grand celebration of a patriotic theme. Ladies and gentlemen are encouraged to wear any period decoration that shows a patriotic theme such as cockades, red-white-blue ribbons, or company insignia.
Come Lassies and Laddies to the Friday night President's Remembrance Day Ball!
This year’s Fancy Dress theme is The Tartan Ball to commemorate those of Celtic heritage who fought during the Civil War. For 1860s Fancy Dress (costume) gentlemen you may wish to come as an historical character such as Rob Roy, William Wallace, King Robert the Bruce, a clansman in a great kilt, a Chieftain of a clan. Ladies you may wish to come as a simple shepherdess, a milk maid, or a noble clans woman. Be as creative as you like!
If you do not wish to wear a fancy dress costume then gentlemen are welcomed to wear kilted attire, or add a waistcoat or cockade of Tartan. Ladies may wish to wear the traditional Tartan sash with your ballgown or add tartan ribbons to your headpiece. Thistles (Scotland), Daffodils (Wales) and Shamrocks (Ireland) can also be incorporated with pride.
Of course, Civil War period attire is always welcome for both ladies and gentlemen. During dinner enjoy the lilting sounds of a Celtic Harpist. Also, Jim Duffy, native of Dunfermline, Scotland, will be reciting by memory Robert Burn’s epic poem 'Tam O’Shanter' while dessert is enjoyed. The ball will begin with the Calling of the Clans led by a bagpiper and Highland dancers will demonstrate their skills during one of the dance intermissions. This is going to be a spectacular evening you will not want to miss!
